The Children’s Body-Image Foundation seeks to help children of all ages to feel good about themselves and to love the skin they’re in, no matter what it looks like! They seek to raise body image awareness and educate the general public about conditions and disorders such as clubfeet, pediatric cancers, alopecia (hair loss), amputation, body dysmorphia, eating disorders, and others. They help out at events and work with businesses, and they also distribute financial need to children who cannot cover their own medical costs. Though they’re still a small organization, we think their mission is great and hope they only grow stronger!
Realize Your Beauty is based in Harlem and strives to teach young girls to have a positive body image and to recognize the signs of an eating disorder in themselves and their friends. RYB travels to different schools, festivals and local theatres to present educational plays, presentations and workshops. They want students to question the idea of “beauty” that is presented them by the media and learn to love themselves just as they are.
